I was just looking at the place I bought my gametime, and they have instructions there, and links to the patch and stuff, so you can try that. I had trouble with the patcher taking forever when I downloaded the original game client files from the official chinese website, so I'd recommend downloading and installing them from here (http://games.on.net/filelist.php?app=1565&menu=1) if you have any problems. The patcher, account creation, and all that jazz should be fairly straightforward from here (http://cn-usa.com/?cmd=buy&loc=170404), where you'll also buy gametime. 1 RMB = over 2 hrs, so you'll want to either buy 30 or 45 rmb to get started. Dirt cheap. I used Google checkout. That first drop-down box is the region. I chose the one with the 2 at the end during account creation, when purchasing gametime, and in the launcher during patching. If you do all that right, it should only take you about 15 min. or less to patch and start playing the game, after installing.

Lemme know if you have any probs. I'll update you soon with the server I'm playing on, so if you decide to play... :blah:

For additional info, google "aion chinese" or "aion client english patch" or something like that, and ask me if you get stuck in the process of downloading or installing it. There are a ton of forums with detailed instructions on how to get it up and running.

Cheers. I'm downloading the four beta files now, but I'm not sure if I should download the fifith one. Should I?

Regardless, it's going to take a while though.

Rgerading the account, I'm absoloutely gobsmacked. It's going to cost me 15p to play for two hours? That's amazing!

Btw, how illegal is this? I don't care, just with regards to other people.

Don't fuck with manual patches though. If you do it right, you shouldn't need them.

Rgerading the account, I'm absoloutely gobsmacked. It's going to cost me 15p to play for two hours? That's amazing!I dunno what 15p means. I paid around 8 US dollars for roughly 130 hrs of gameplay, which will last me 3+ months I expect. Enormously better than paying $50 US retail and $12-15 a month afterward.

Btw, how illegal is this? I don't care, just with regards to other people.Well, it can't be too illegal, if SDO is dealing out international game time cards, right? I wouldn't worry about it. I figure, worst case scenario, I'm out $8.

Okay, remember to choose the region with the 2 at the end. And when you go to create your first character on a game server, pick Ascalon for the server. That's where my main is. It'll be sweet to game with ya Tsar. :p

What about the English patch?


I dunno what 15p means.

LOL
The British is divided into 100 pennies, or p. It's about...25 cents.

Nah, I'm not. Just wondering, in case people I tell are.

Sure. Presumably, you're Daruko, cos I'll be Tsar.

Oh yeah, that one. But it's not even a "patch" patch really. It's just a .pak file your throw into a folder.

No, my nick is Eiji

Also, that "patch" will not change the launcher for the game. It is only after you load into the game that it should be in english.

They said 1.9 GB whilst I was downloading them. I had every single reason to believe that they were the correct files.

You're doing it wrong. :icon_razz:

No, I don't know. It's weird. I don't know you keep ending up with those 1.85 files.

North American and European betas are happening NAO!

Not sure about Europe, but for NA, just go down to your local Gamestop and preorder Aion for five bucks, and you can play today. I'm currently d/l-ing at 600k/sec at 16% for the NA version. WOOT!

Stinks tho... Tsar, you'll probably be playing the European version. :icon_cry:

Anyway, if you live in NA and want to start your download while you're getting your beta key from Gamestop (also comes with a ton of in-game items, stat bonuses, etc.), you can start your download here. (http://aion.patcher.ncsoft.com/liteinstaller/aion.exe)

I'll update this thread with the server I and my friends and family are playing on once I'm loaded in... it'd be cool if anyone who is interested in playing from here jumped on the same server. :icon_cool:

Aww man. It would have been cool to play with someone I already knew :(

I think I'll wait a bit before I get it anyway. Certainly until after my German Exchange comes over to the UK.

Some new screens from my remade NA character and my wife's Spiritmaster character. In two weeks, beta goes live with the Asmodian (dark) race, and I'll publish screenshots from that shit. :D
